diverse campus provides a better education. that was the court's holding. after the argument today it seems clear the court is not going to go and overrule that precedent but the problem many of the justices had is how do you know when you have enough diversity. the university of texas has an unusual system. it automatically admits anybody who graduates in the top 10% academically of any high school in texas. that gets a fair amount of diversity on campus because many of those schools tend to be racially more uniform, predominantly black or hispanic and tend to get diversity. the problem for perhaps the majority of the justices how do you know when there's enough diversity. what the school says is, we don't want merely diversity in numbers. we want african-american students who are interested in fencing and speaking greek and studying architecture and hispanic students who are great fencers or ballet dancers. we want diversity in other words within the mere racial numbers. and i think for a majority of the court the question is how do you know when you're there, how do you know whe
of talking about our educational system, instead of talking about educational and pell grants. >> incarceration rates. >> all the opportunity ladders, all of these barriers, racial discrimination employment. there's a whole lot of things they could have talked about instead and i think it's really important is that we not fall for it. that african merges have to say this is not it it. i'm sorry. we're better than that. we're capable of having professional jobs, all kinds of jobs. this is a very, very, very detrimental ad. >> can i talk about this for a second? when we look at the history of the 20th century, history of labor in the 20th century, one of the great triumphs of the civil rights era was for people to recognize -- for white labor to recognize that as long as black laborers were excluded from unions they were undercutting white labor as well. >> it took a while. >> it did. it took 60 years actually. so when you see this kind of cynical advertising, they're trying to use that same ploy using african-americans. and if we had any doubt about the inter-related struggles,
educational programs and pell grants. they can cut those without consequences. more and more with the younger generation, they're digital. we need online registration. >> well said, by the way, in the state of california, many state legislators were saying that the reason they cut higher education for the uc system first is they figured there was the least amount of political consequence for them in doing so because young people don't vote. the case that we're making to people is not just vote because of the historical importance or because of the necessity as american citizens, but money equates to vote because they allocate money and resources on the basis of how groups turn out and that's critical. >> if they think they can cut you without consequence, they will. >> they will. >> part of the sin nichl here, too, is the youth vote was a critical vote in the 2008 elections. to this point of who is most impacted, both the people who have been getting much, much more engaged in our electoral process. these are first -- many times they're first-time voters. and what we're doing is essentially s

question. the simplest answer has to do with education. if you adjusted those rates for the various education levels within each of those groups, they'd be a lot closer. for example, if you look at the unemployment rate for high school graduates, it's probably around 8% or 9%. college graduates, around 4%. one explanation. and, look, there's still discrimination in our job market against minorities, that's another explanation. >> okay. look, it's not just jack welch, whom we heard from, perpetuating this conspiracy theory. look at these interviews. congressman alan west, senator john mccain both on cnbc. here we go. >> i know. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data. correct? >> well, absolutely. >> frankly, i am not enough of an economist to question exactly what those numbers are. our discussion about the warren act that just took place where there are blatant violations of the law, i wouldn't put anything past this administration. >> you know, these are sit

's just educating them. funny, the koch brothers, they say the same thing. darrell and charles koch sent a list of suggested candidates to 500,000 employees during the last election. monday, they launched a $1 million ad campaign in 13 states. they say they're just educating voters. all of these millionaire and billionaire bosses are supporting romney for several reasons. romney will cut their taxes and deregulate their industries. it's not about the workers, it's about using the workers to deliver greater wealth to these bosses. let's turn to robert reich, former secretary of labor under bill clinton and now a professor at public policy at uc berkeley and author of the book, "beyond outrage." this would take many employees, i think, to outrage, knowing that their job could be on the line if they don't vote the way the boss wants them to. mr. reich, good to have you with us tonight. do these ceos care more about their employees or their bottom line? >> ed, there's no question. they care not only about their bottom lines, but they treat their employees as costs to be cut rather than asset
security and medicare and medicaid and education and so forth come from the ground up. they're what people want, they're what people need, they're what people voted for. they're part of the fabric of american life. they're not trickle-down anything. and what the president has to do and what joe biden has to do tomorrow night is to confront that notion. joe biden has to not only defend the president and attack paul ryan for his libertarian ideas, joe biden has to defend social security and medicare and the very idea of the usefulness and the importance of government in sharing responsibility in america, a big, heavy lift for joe biden tomorrow night. >> it's a heavy lift, howard, i agree, but it's also right in his wheelhouse. everyone in this country knows his middle class background. he is true to his value of helping the middle class. he legislated that way for 30 years in the senate. some think that joe biden's been put in an untenable position, a tough position. but isn't this good for biden? and i think for the president to come out and say joe's got to be joe, that's kind of saying,

educator have failed. i've failed. >> no. >> evolution was discovered. it's not something people made up. it was discovered and the evidence for it is astonishing. it's overwhelming. charles darwin back in his day took flowers, he took roses. >> they're props. i love it when you bring props. >> he compared different varieties of flowers and he came up with a very reasonable explanation of species and he used the same techniques that flower breersd use today, a little tweezers, magnifiers and he studied the ova, the eggs and pollen of flowers. i mention this only as an example. what do these guys do, i ask myself, when they take their children to a conventional natural history museum and there are natural fossil dinosaur bones. one of the problems these guys brought up is the age of the earth. i say that as an age-old question. this is my perception of their words. they each assert that the earth is 6,000, 10,000 years old, something like, that but i'm sure they both, if they don't have smoke detector in their house, they evenly probably been in hotel rooms with smoke detextures and they
officials said this week they are pulling their multimillion dollar ad campaign targeted at educating voters about the photo i.d. requirements because of course there is no longer an i.d. requirement. but you know what? even before you get to taking down your ad campaign as you meander around with that task pennsylvania you might also want to consider this. the bureau of elections for cumberland county in pennsylvania as of today hopefully informing its visitors that, quote, all voters will be required to show photo i.d. at the polling place in the november, 2012, general election. actually voters will not be required to show photo i.d. at the polling place in the november 2012 general election but you'd never know it. look at montgomery county department news. pennsylvania's newly adopted voter i.d. law will not take effect until the november, 2012 election. they also link to this handy voter i.d. flyer. this is not the law. what it says here, this is not true. they are telling people to stay away from the polls when it is in fact legal for them to show up and vote. pennsylvania elections o
level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> for today's flashback, we turn our attention to 1996, when the presidential race was a choice between bill clinton and bob dole. 16 years ago, the incumbent president and his republican challenger met for their first debate. the showdown was in hartford, connecticut, and moderated by jim lehrer of pbs. it was also the year of a new block of voters, that was identified as jonathan alter explained to tom brokaw in the post-debate analysis. >> the swing voter this year goes by a new buzz word. they're called soccer moms. these are white women, living in the suburbs, some of them watch their kids play soccer. four years ago, george bush led bill clinton by ten percentage points, 15 in some polls, with this constituency. this year clinton is crushing dole in all the surveys of this group. it's a tremendous number of voters, white women living in the suburbs. they respond to a certain set of issues, gun control, education, medicare, because many of them are t
programming has been in -- i worked in education for a number of years -- the gold standard, not just here in the united states, around the world, recognized as a gold standard in children's education. at a time when kids in our country, not enough of them can actually read proficiently, what sense does it make to cut? i mean, we're not going to balance that $5 trillion hole by getting rid of big bird. that's what i think part of reminding people about big bird does, how ridiculous the rhetoric from the romney/ryan campaign is, but also the idea that, so, you're going to cut something that we know is effective and works and helps our kids prepare for the future, but you're going to continue to give subsidies to big oil? that doesn't make sense. so, i do think that there is a seriousness to this conversation and i think biden is the kind of guy who can bring that right balance to the debate. >> all right, so, one thing in an interview, congressman ryan did talk about his nerves playing into effect for thursday. take a look. >> joe biden's one of the best debaters we've seen in modern politi
education or highways or on the entitlement programs, but we never seem to agree on revenues. i think one of the major stumbling blocks which i've pointed out people have bought on to the theory as part of deficit reduction we ought to lower the top rate on the highest income people. you lose a ton of revenue there and you can't make it up unless you squeeze the middle class. so if you're going to start out by saying the first thing we do is lower the rate from say 35 to 28 as simpson-bowles does or 25 as ryan does it's virtually impossible do deficit reduction without hurting the middle class. my suggestion intended to break this deadlock, this gridlock we've had on getting a budget deal for the last year and a half, let's get off this thing that the first thing we do is say we're going to lower the top rate. in the presidential campaign, the president's campaigning on letting the rate on the highest income people go back to where it was in the clinton years, that makes sense. now some republicans are saying yeah, we may have to do that. that's the way to get a deal done. instead of the
in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> yesterday, the state department began the process of coming clean about what occurred in benghazi. contrary to early assertions by the administration, let's understand. there was no protest. and cameras reveal that and the state department, the fbi and others have that video. >> however, the chairman claims we are pursuing this investigation on a quote bipartisan basis, that has simply not been the case. chairman withheld documents provided to the committee which is in violation of the house rules. >> struggled to obtain additional personnel but was never able to obtain the numbers he felt comfortable with. >> this afternoon, serious questions of security of personnel raised. former head of the u.s. military team in libya testified before the house oversight committee that even before the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans they never had the forces needed. comes a day after the state department said they never concluded it was triggered by the youtube
we should make sure we have a fair shot at the american dream, through our educational system. >> absolutely. professor, we know where mitt romney stands. as for paul ryan, he was asked directly -- i'm sorry, he wasn't, sorry, asked directly about affirmative action but let me show you what he said about those americans who live in the inner city. >> the best thing to help prevent violent crime in inner cities is to bring opportunity in inner cities, help people get out of poverty, teach people good discipline, good character. >> the republican's content breathtaking. >> wow. >> ryan suggests those lack discipline and character. this do they not realize four-fifths of the actual population now lives in an urban area? >> they probably don't realize that. judging from the limited amount of time their campaign has actually spent in urban areas, you can tell how much they value it. the problem with mr. ryan's comments here is he is ascribing inherent characteristics to being poor or living in the inner city. that's troubling and problematic. it plays to a lot of stereotypes and ra
